Week 16

These are the songs I picked between 10 October and 16 October 2014. I’ll talk about them next time.

Stepping Out (Reprise) – Liza Minnelli … What I loved about the show in general was the use of women of different ages and shapes in the chorus. I’m not sure if Liza wanted to make a statement then, or maybe 1992 was just so long ago that young skinny bitches hadn’t conquered the entertainment industry yet.

Bye Bye Blackbird * – Liza Minnelli

I Love A Violin – Liza Minnelli

Dejala Bailar – Soledad Bravo

Catch A Falling Star Emilie de Ravin … Such a lovely way to give ourselves permission to be sentimental hoarders, we never know when the things we’ve collected and kept near our hearts may awake and finally serve a purpose.

Moving On (Alternate, with Ukulele) * – Orchestra

Shuffle Off To Buffalo – Ruby Keeler, Clarence Nordstrum, Ginger Rogers, Una Merkel, Chorus … This 1933 song reminds me of my childhood. Young readers won’t bat an eyelid since they may assume that’s around the time I was born.
